I love lip tints. I’m someone who loves a low-maintenance beauty routine, and lip tints, for me, are the star of the show. So when Versed Skincare released their set of tinted lip oils, I couldn’t wait to try!
May 28th marked Versed Skincare’s 1-year anniversary and to celebrate, they dropped the Silk Slip Tinted Lip Oils in three shades. They’re a clean, vegan, and cruelty-free lip product, packed with nourishing ingredients like jojoba oil and shea. Best part? They each individually retail for just $9.99!
You can watch my first impressions of the tinted lip oils here:
Pros and Cons
- Price: these lip tints retail on their own for $9.99, or you can purchase the trio for $27.99.
- Color payoff: these lip oils deliver a beautiful veil of color in one swipe. A little goes a long way, making it a perfect lip tint.
- Texture: I’ve used a variety of lip tints, and I find that sometimes, they can leave my lips feeling a little dry after a few hours. Not these. Thanks to the jojoba oil, I feel like my lips are nourished for as long as I’m wearing the product. On the lips, it feels lightweight, and you don’t notice it after applying.
- Applicator: I don’t love the applicator. It’s fixed to the tube, and although it’s contoured slightly, I feel like it’s too stiff, leaving me with a less-than-perfect application. Am I being picky? Yes. Product can sit right below the edge of the applicator if you use a little too much and it just becomes a pain.
- Product Size: Although it is price friendly at $9.99, you only get 0.3oz of product, which feels a little light to me. The good thing is, you don’t need a ton of product for a nice color payoff, which offsets the lack of product a bit.
The Silk Slip Lip Oil Trio
From the top: Fig, Ruby, Blossom. They felt a little sticky on the hand, but they blended beautifully on the lips. No stickiness!
Blossom is a pretty medium pink which gives me major Barbie vibes. What I love about this shade in particular is how subtle it starts off on the lips, and allows you to build up the color. It’s the perfect on-the-go shade that brightens up the face without trying too hard.
Ruby is a sheer blue red (tbh I thought it was a reddish pink, not blue oops) and it might be my favorite from the bunch. This tint packs a PUNCH of color. It’s a perfect splash of color – more than blossom – but not so much I feel like I’m dressed up. It’s stunning on the lips.
Fig is a mauvey berry and it’s a beautiful fall/winter color (not that you can’t wear it in the summer). A little goes a long way, and the color payoff is just….ugh. I love.
